BIX – A1037833
**GONE 06/01/15** NEW HOPE ONLY! How did 9-month-old BIX go from being described as “friendly and loves being pet,” to a New Hope rating, in 3 days? Simple: the shelter environment is so terrifying and demeaning that this sweet kitten has NO idea how to handle herself there. Bix needs some time to unwind in a loving environment, but unless someone steps up NOW and works with a rescue to foster/adopt her, Bix is only going to get a black plastic freezer bag. Yes, the shelter kills kittens for being homeless and scared, and BIX is slated to go down the hard way tomorrow, right after lunch. Please don’t let her story end in such a horrible way! Find a New Hope rescue to be her hero, tonight!
My name is BIX. My Animal ID # is A1037833.
I am a female org tabby and white domestic sh mix. The shelter thinks I am about 9 MONTHS old.
I came in the shelter as a STRAY on 05/28/2015 from NY 11367, owner surrender reason stated was STRAY.

05/30/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Bix was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. She seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment Bix was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: hisses, growls at me (3) When spoken quietly: hisses, growls at me (3) Reaction to door cage opening: become stiff, alert, continues to hiss (3) Reaction to touch: swats at me (4) Try picking cat up: not tolerant of this type of behavior, hisses swat. Placement Determination: NewHope
